Part Nineteen Of “The Catholic View of Judaism” Series 

Pope Clement VIII was born in 1536 in Fano, Italy. He became a Catholic priest and scholar and was elected as Pope in 1592.

That same year, Pope Clement VIII wrote Cum Sapae Accidere (When the Wine Was Boiled).

The Papal bull (law) banned Jews from selling goods.

The next year he wrote Caeca et Obdurata Hebraeorum perfidia (Blinded and Hardened by the Deceitfulness of the Jews), which claimed the Jews used money lending to take advantage of the working class.

Later that year, he also wrote Cum Haebraeorum Malitia (When Jews Harm), which banned the Talmud and demanded that copies be confiscated and burned.

These facts are documented in a book written by Michael C. Thomsett:

Michael C. Thomsett, The Inquisition: A History. (North Catholina, McFarland & Company, 2010), 118.
